of it in reaction to harry reid's dismal statement. i got an e-mail with it all in caps, the market is coming in on these headlines from harry reid. this matters, every word they say matters and white house press secretary jay carney was on the defense today. he pointed out as he had done yesterday that the president spoke on the phone with senate majority leader harry reid and john boehner over the weekend. and besides carney says, the president has to talk directly to the american people. >> it is vitally important that ordinary americans actively engage in this debate because the outcome of these negotiations and the hopeful product of these negotiations are the product that we hope emerges from these negotiations will profoundly affect their lives. >> so is the president, the missing ingredient to really nailing down a fiscal cliff deal? could he end the drama right now if he stayed put in washington and held a series of face-to-face meetings with reid, mcconnell, boehner, and pelosi instead of his planned meetings this week with small business owners, business leaders and middle class am
months of 2007 george bush went to nancy pelosi and harry reid and said i need a, guess what, stimulus. that terrible word. pelosi and reid worked with him to do that. then in 2008 they came to us. john, you and i worked together on the whole response to the financial. i believe we had in 2007, 2008, this is not a longstanding problem. a great deal of cooperation in the bush administration. i do believe that there were elected some people in 2010, tea party influence, who reputinated the notion of compromise, and someave said it exclusively. i think partisanship, you have to start from a position of principle and then you work together. i think in 2007 and 2008 we showed how can you do that. >> candy, let me join in the general hopefulness that we're going to avoid the fiscal cliff, but it's not a done deal. it's not a certainty. the reason is the country -- the government is on automatic pilot to the fiscal cliff, to massive tax increases and really horrible spending cuts on january 1st unless we act, so if congress does -- congress has gotten pretty good at doing these days, we'll go
bizarre that the leader of the democrats in the senate, harry reid, attacks me personally. the american people don't want their taxes raised. they have kind of signaled that in the most recent senate election where harry reid's guy lost and the anti-tax candidate won in nevada. so the tax issue is a powerful issue. i understand it comes with the territory, that people attack me personally. it doesn't bother me. i'm very comfortable in my own skin. if they want to waste their time personally attacking me, they're free to do so. but taxes are too high. spending is too high. this needs to be changed and i think the american people will make it clear as time unfolds that raising taxes is not where they want to go. >> grover norquist, thanks very much for joining us. >> thanks, wolf. >>> let's get another point of view right now. joining us, dick durbin, assistant majority leader, the senator from illinois. senator, thanks very much for coming in. we just heard from grover norquist, several republicans on capitol hill this week have said they would consider defying his pledge but for some of
-panthers, philadelphia. >> how about that monday-nighter? >> i know. i just continue to worry about andy reid because he looks so pathetic. >> yeah, it's been a very rough year for the eagles and their head coach andy reid. a lot of folks are calling for his head. this team lost six in a row, the most since before he took over. but while a lot of people want him fired right now, i think you have to look at the body of work, carol, for him. six division titles, he won an nfc championship game, winningest coach ever in philadelphia. and i think a little respect, too, for reid as a person who lost his son earlier in the season. you could make a change with this eagles' team, a lot of injuries, including michael vick. but a lot of people also believe that an interim coach in the middle of a year doesn't always translate into immediately turning things around. so i believe, like a lot of people, that reid will be gone, but it won't happen probably until the end of the year. >> vince chelani from bleacher report, thank you so much. >> don't forget, go to bleacherreport.com. carol, good to see you. >> i'm goin
. >> and wolf, just moments ago, the senate majority leader harry reid released a statement, very, very direct and pretty critical of those republican senators who were critical of susan rice. really defending susan rice, and he was talking about the republican senators saying the election is over. it's time to drop these partisan political games and focus on the real challenges facing the nation. he said that these attacks on susan rice are unfounded and they don't jive with reality. i can tell you that senator joe lieberman who is the chairman of the homeland security committee came out of a separate meeting with rice and said he he found her answers satisfying and he would vote for her for secretary of state if he was voting. >> thanks very much, dana bash. with that looming on capitol hill, the looming battle over the so-called fiscal cliff. >> there's a lot going on. a lot of battles going on. specifically on capitol hill, that's for sure. lawmakers have just 35 days to reach a debt reduction deal. otherwise, huge spending cuts and steep tax hikes will automatically take effect and affect
in place, boehner and can'ter and pelosi, obama and reid. >> you're confident that we'll get it done? >> i'm positive about the american people. at some point in time we have to do this. i'd rather ease into it than have an event that makes us have to do it. we're thinking along the right ways right now. we've got do it at some point. >> ron hart, thank you. >>> a four-hour run or 17 hours of yoga. sound fun? not to me. that's what experts say you would have to do to burn off the thanksgiving calories. does that sound fun? think about it. 17 hours of yoga. fitness and nutrition expert mark mcdonald offers some alternatives. ♪two of a kind ♪for your information ♪we're two of a kind ♪two of a kind ♪it's my observation ♪we're two of a kind ♪like peas in a pod ♪and birds of a feather ♪alone or together you'll find ♪that we are two-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, of a kind♪ the treadmill this holiday weekend. >> by some accounts, you would have to do some serious and i mean serious exercising just to burn off the calories packed into most thanksgiving day meals. >> but that's w

in washington. the white house says the president did speak with speaker boehner and senator reid over the weekend to touch base on this very issue. as one republican aide put it to cnn, the fact that they are still talking is progress. but a democratic aide said they don't have staff had you hadling in a room going over spreadsheets which is where they need to get to hammer out a deal. what they're doing now is they're at the dancing stage of this negotiation. >> a lot of folks are saying it's not the republicans in the senate so much will be the problem for the obama administration, but republicans in the house of representatives, especially those from the tea party movement and others will be a serious problem. >> what was an important group of republicans during the debt ceiling debate while this election has changed the arithmet arithmet arithmetic, republicans in the house will be key to this negotiation. the two men that need to hammer out this deal, just like it was over the summer, is still president obama and spooeseaker boehner. >> i don't think there's any doubt the preside
leader harry reid said let's not mess with social security, signals from the white house indicating they're not going to touchdown social security, maybe medicare, medicaid, but not social security and republicans will say, wait a minute, you're not serious. we're giving ground on revenue, you got to give ground on spending. and, brooke, i think the biggest thing here is that this bill, if they get a bill, is going to be so unpopular because it is going to raise taxes and it is going to cut benefits and getting the votes to pass this is going to be enormously difficult. >> you bring up the benefits issue. let me run through this, because it brings us back to the possibility of no deal whatsoever. again, on the automatic tax increases come january 1. we're talking about a lot of stuff here. the bush era tax cuts expire. as does the president's so-called payroll tax holiday on social security deductions, follow along with me, the so-called marriage penalty returns full force, you also have extended unemployment set to expire here. and the child tax credit drops by half. capital gains go up
, the senate majority leader harry reid the democrat over the weekend, perhaps to try to jump-start the talks. as of now, as the house of representatives comes back today, as the senate came back yesterday, we're still very much in limbo on the fiscal cliff. >> here's something else we know. some major republicans have come out and they say that they don't feel bound by the americans for tax reform pledge. most recently we saw house majority leader eric cantor. do you believe more republicans will stick by this? >> what we're finding out right now zoraida is that there's a little bit of coming to jesus moment about how to fix the fiscal cliff. for republicans perhaps it is going to be higher taxes. for democrats there's going to have to be some changes to entitlement reform. but grover norquist has been really the person pushing this no tax pledge, has been on our airwaves. he's been talking a lot about it. let's hear what he had to say about republicans who might break the pledge. >> no pledge taker has voted for a tax increase. they've had some people discussing impure thoughts on national
leader harry reid that the work on this would continue over the break and that they hope to meet the president this week when they return. right now that meeting is not yet on the schedule, but that can certainly change, randi. >> has there been any concrete movement as far as we can tell that they are edging maybe just a little bit closer to a deal? >> well, that's really the question here. i mean, as i said, the work has continued among staffers discussing this. we know what the big hold-ups are, the big sticking points, and that's how to raise more tax revenue. we know republicans can put revenue on the table, but they don't want to see tax rates go up for anyone. we also know that the president ran on this idea of raising taxes on the wealthiest among us. the other issue is entitlements. republicans want to see democrats reform programs like medicare, so those are the sticking points. now, if there's been progress that hasn't been made public yet, and i can tell you that right after the election the president spoke with house speaker john boehner, and they talked about a grea
harry reid said before the thanksgiving break that they'd be working on this over the break and that they hoped to meet with the president this week. we'll just have to see if that happens. >> all right, athena jones at the white house, thanks so much. >>> meantime, talks are set to resume tomorrow in cairo between israelis and egyptians. they're hoping to hammer out details of the assess fire with hamas. troops have reprettied from the gaza border, israeli troops, and hamas leaders say a delegation from gaza has arrived in cairo. on the table, opening border crossings and easing israel's economic blockade in gautds intra. >>> u.s. senator john mccain is softening language on the potential nomination of susan rice to become the next u.s. secretary of state following harsh criticism of the administration's response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >> i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took. and i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> the arizona republican had blasted the
it for political reasons. the senate majority leader harry reid put out a statement yesterday saying guys the election is over. enough already. that is the other reason why susan collins is significant. she is not known as someone who would go after people particularly someone who has the potenti potential -- that is why what she said is important because it is difficult to say susan collins is doing this for political reasons. >> great questions live on the spot and also great reporting. thank you for that. yes, secretary of state is currently hillary clinton but mrs. clinton has said she does plan to step down as soon as her successor is lined up. ♪ thanks.

and of course majority leader harry reid. it's time to put aside all of these election year gripes and start focusing on how we get the american people back on their feet, healthy, strong and back to work. >> i hate to keep talking about the last election because, you know, we've got to look ahead. nonetheless, there's some very interesting little nuggets out there including one about the fashion line, if you will, that was put out by the obama campaign as a fund raising tool. now, jim messina, the campaign manager, said this, the obama fashion line ended upbringing him just north of $40 million, raise money, register voters, persuade voters, everything has to feed into those three things. now, a lot of people laughed about this, you know -- there you go. look at that. these are things from vera wang, marc jacobs, and it was something of a joke. but $40 million, who's laughing now? what do you think, is this a new tactic for campaigns to use in the future? >> absolutely. look, if you can raise north of $40 million putting a logo on a t-shirt or pocketbook or purse, why not? i mean, the ameri
